    Even though I know the iPhone X was coming out in the near future, I decided to go with the iPhone 8 instead. It wasn't a decision on whether or not I could afford it, but how much of the features that the X has that I would actually use that would justify paying extra for. Not to mention, I do prefer the home button that I have been used to since the first iPhone ever came out. And I like the fingerprint sensor to unlock my phone. I would recommend it to anyone with a 6s or older model. You really aren't getting much more than what you have with the 7. The iPhone 8 doesn't look much different since it's last major redesign from the iPhone 6, but it definitely has the improvements in technology on the inside to make it a worthy investment. My best advice when it comes to choosing any phone is to go with what you prefer in a phone. That made my decision a lot easier and the iPhone 8 is perfect for me.

    Another freaking apple phone - why won't I learn?

    So my daughter's iphone 5c was aging, being nearly 4 years old, and my iPhone 6 stopped working correctly, and I'm watching the lawsuit against Apple with glee. I wanted to go Samsung, but she loves apple, so I took one for the team, fully charged my "6" so it would work when evaluated for trade in, and got this phone as the 'buy one' part of the special AT&T was running under their Next program. Of course, my '6' was a 64Gb, and was nearly full after 3 1/2 years, so I sort of talked myself into getting the 256Gb beast. Apple could simplify all of our lives (theirs and ours) by just providing a slot for a standard memory expansion card (micro SD?) like other makers do for Android phones. Would make transferring or printing photos ever so much less sucky. BB staff was decent to work with, although some of the conversations between team members about disciplinary discussions were kind of unprofessional. Keep that stuff in the break room please.

    I traded in a 6s plus. I loved th bigger screen on the 6s plus, but it becam too much of a hassle carrying it in my front pocket, especially while driving. This smaller size fits much better. Apple makes their phone upgrades in small increments, so it’s hard to see any real difference between this and the 6s. My only complaint is that I had service issues after switching phones. After the first day, I could not call or receive calls for almost a week (only text worked). Eventually things cleared up and now seems to work fine. I was an Altell customer and service has never been as good since bought out by AT&T. I’ve stayed with them only because they are cheaper than Verizon. I only recommend if you have an iPhone older than the 6s.

    Upgraded specs in the same shell

    I upgraded to the iPhone 8 from the 6s and to be honest there’s not much of a difference. After being so used to having a headphone jack, I will say it took a few days to get used to only having one outlet. A word of advice would be to purchase another dongle (lightning to 3.5mm) adapter: one for the purse/backpack/briefcase and one for your car so you’re not risking losing it. It’s very zippy, especially after updating to iOS 12. Battery life is better, along with being able to wirelessly charge the phone (haven’t tried it yet), and it doesn’t take as long to charge the phone. I would definitely recommend the iPhone 8 if you’re itching to upgrade; but if not then the 6s will still do just fine. I hope this helps!

    After clinging onto my 6S for years, i decided i needed a phone with stronger glass but didn’t want anything crazy expensive or fancy. This is a great 6S-but-better device. The transition to being headphone jackless hurts a little bit less as I am still familiar with the phone itself (although i do miss getting to use my headphones while charging my phone, but i can get an adapter or pods). The phone feels more luxurious, from the slimmer design and quicker, nicer screen, even with its more frequent vibrate home button click thing (sorry i don’t know the term). Going from 16GB of storage to 256 is a dream, but that is just a personal bonus.

    I Love My iPhone 8

    I upgraded from an iPhone 5S and boy was it an upgrade. I had considered the iPhone X because of the bigger screen, but I couldn't justify the extra price. I'm very happy with the iPhone 8. The screen is much bigger than the 5S and as a result, I don't use my iPad as much anymore. Force Touch (or whatever it's called) is really nice to have. I use it all the time with google maps to check traffic before I leave for work or for home. Other than that, it's an iPhone. So it works as expected. I love the 256GB size so I don't have to worry about running out of space anytime soon.

    I've had an iPhone for many many years now. I highly suggest this phone for anyone whom doesn't want the newest iPhone. I had and iPhone 7 but did not want a gigantic new iPhone nor did I want to lose my home button. This phone should last new a few years until I'm forced to upgrade. The 256GB should last me a long long time. I still have over 200GB free even after pulling down my apps, pics and music. The red glass back is amazing, I love it. You cannot get that color from Apple anymore in the iPhone 8, buy this while you can. I will say the camera is better than the 7 but I have not really noticed a speed improvement but I was not purchasing this for that reason.

    The android phone I had was just to big for my hand. So I got a Iphone 8. While driving home from Paulsbo WA, I wanted to call in a pizza order in Bremerton to pick up one the way home. With my Note 7 all I have to do was say "call Bremerton Domino" it would of done so with no further trouble. Siri on the other hand made me turn on my locator and then gave me every Dominos pizza in Port Orchad. No matter what I said even the full address of the place the darn thing just kept giving me PO. I don't like having my locator on it's always off. Some of the apps that worked very well on the Note 7 don't on this phone or are sluggish One of the worse is the ADT app.

    Waited for a promo to upgrade my iPhone. Best Buy had a great deal through my carrier so it was a no-brainer. The phone is exactly what I wanted (sorry not impressed with the iPhone X enough to pay the difference). Process at Best Buy was easy and painless to set up the phone and transfer everything from old to new. Best Buy employees are friendly, well trained, knowledgeable and not on commission. Going to Best Buy is much less hassle and better experience than going elsewhere (including Apple Store.). Great product. Even better with Best Buy deal and service.

    I was having problems with space on my old iPhone 5S so I decided to look at the new iPhones. The iPhone X and 8 Plus were both more expensive and basically only offered a better camera. The iPhone 8 had a reasonable price and was on sale, which made it even better. The camera was improved over the camera on my iPhone 5S so I was very pleased with its performance. I got plenty of memory on my iPhone 8 so I won't run into issues with iCloud backups and won't have to delete apps in order to have enough memory, as were both happening on my iPhone 5S. I'm very pleased with my iPhone 8.

    Iphone 8 in Special Edition Red Color

    My younger male teenager picked out a black iPhone 8 which they ran out at our local BestBuy. They had 1 RED special edition and my teenager reluctantly said yes. However, when brought home, he was pleased. The color is a vivid bright red and when you put a case on it, only the outline RED color shows around the phone-- so it's easier to find in a dark student's backpack. The next day, Bestbuy called and said they got in a new black iPhone 8 -- another black one. He said NO. He was happy with the Red one even though that was NOT his first choice color.

    I went for the iPhone 8 because it has the home button allowing use of a finger/thumb to open the phone,,,, i have used facial ID on other devices and do not like it so I decided to go with the last iPhone that done NOT have facial ID. Overall it works great, fast, good battery life, i am very very happy with the camera. The help at Best Buy was great, my biggest worry is getting all data from my old to the new phone, and the associate made that happen with no problem at all.

    IT was the last one that BestBuy had in stock in this color. My kid was elated-- since this is an upgrade to the iPhone 7 which is slowly not being supported anymore. The iPhone 8 replaced an iPhone 6 and my kid could not be happier to have the upgraded Camera and several few more bells and whistles. The iPhone X was a little too different to jump into therefore, the iPhone 8 was a a happy medium. For instance, it STIlL supports i.d. recognition without resorting to Face recognition only like the iPhone X.

    I am a long time iPhone user and kept my iPhone 6 for several years because I had no issues, but the battery life was an issue and it was time to upgrade so I went with this instead of the X and I am very happy. The battery life is phenomenal. Everything is similar to what I’m used to, but better. It’s less of a pain to transfer all your stuff now, and I love the new durability and color scheme. My only complaint is that the 8 should have the same camera options as the 8 plus

    Wish the phone was more different from an exterior POV than the 6S I upgraded from, but overall it's a great phone. Camera is out of this world good for a smartphone. It's a little different getting used to the lack of a physical home button, but the interface is still good. Battery life is at least double what I was getting on my old 6S and that was after having installed a new battery several months ago. Overall, I'm happy with this phone!

    Another iPhone. I am one of those people who is helping to tamp down Apple's earnings. I never but the latest phone and this is another example. I am annoyed by the fact that they removed the headphone plug since I am not a big fan of their headphones and don't want to shell out for wireless ones. So I am instead stuck using the adapter which I am sure I am going to misplace soon. Oh well.

    You used to have to use passcode to turn off an iPhone. Great for find phone as thief could not turn it off until they find a spot with no signal to try and break into it. Even with parental settings it can just be turned off. The location settings seem to be a hit and miss lately also. Ours says we are logging in from Texas which is thousands of miles from home As far as the camera and speed and apps it’s amazing. Apple is still our phone of choice

    I have used four different phones before getting the iPhone 8 there is none I can compare with iPhone 8 . It’s camera is great, its easy to access. Everything about the iPhone 8 works fine, it’s durable easy to carry on. It’s fell in water once for almost a month now I picked up it work fine and it’s still working fine like it never dropped in water. iPhone 8 is awesome.

    Apple has made changes that are counter intuitive and not very smart. I don't like that. Even though it was backed up from my old iphone, the backup froze and geek squad had no idea why. All of my photos and all of my music has disappeared and on line directions to fix it on itunes seem to be useless for the new phone that I bought.

    Upgraded from an old iphone5 and it is much faster at loading apps. The speakers are very much louder than the weak ones on old iphones, and I find myself turning down the volume more often than not. The phone is just a little too large to fully operate with one hand like i could with previous iphones, but the screen is also much larger and brighter than before so I guess that makes up for it.
